Everyday Hero & tons more!

Recently I was able to get together with my Kathleen and her team for some stamping fun and so I thought I’d share some of the project that we made together along with some of the swaps we did.

The first card I’m sharing with you is a swap from Maria using the Everyday Hero stamp set (143080). Maria used our Watercolor Pencils to color this adorable super hero and the Gold Wink of Stella (141898) to color win the WOW so it sparkles.

More swapping fun included cards from Lorraine and Susan using the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle of products (144728).

If you haven’t already gotten this bundle it’s a great one! Lots of fantastic ideas are out there – the options are endless!

And of course who doesn’t love the Beautiful You stamp set 143004/143637) that Teresa used for her card.

And Linda who is new to the team used the Layering Love stamp set (141962/141965) along with the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper (141654) to create this soft lovely card.

She used the Decorative Label Punch (120907) for the end of the banner in a different way – She slipped the card stock into the punch and through the hole so that she only cut one end of the card stock – cool, right?

I just love the versatility of punches!

And finally some of our Make n Takes that I stamped. First this cute little 3d boat made using the Window Box Thinlits Die (142762). Wouldn’t these be great done in red, white and blue for Memorial Day?

And a card using using the Window Shopping Bundle (144742/144743) which includes the same Thinlits, but using it in a different way.

And I love this Suite of products – the Urban District found on page 47 of the Occasions Catalog contains some wonderful coordinating products that include two stamp sets, Designer Series Paper and embellishments! Wow – great for the guys in our lives and so many other uses too.

And finally a Sale-a-bration project using the So Very Much stamp set (143340/143343) that you can earn for free until March 31st.

I loved this emboss resist technique using the 2016 In Colors so much that I’m sending this card out this month to say thank you when you place an order!

Whew! what did I tell you lots of sharing and inspiring going on.  Stamping with my fellow demonstrators is one of the things I enjoy most – it’s a time to gather, learn and inspire each other. And I’ve made some wonderful friendships in my stamping journey because I’m part of the community of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.

This first card Janet gave me is bright and cheerful.

Layering Love SC AC Swap 2016 (2)

I love the layout of the card. It just makes me smile. I’ve included the supply list below for you.

These next two cards are done in classic black and white. And while they both use the wonderful Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper (141648) you won’t see a pop of pink on either of them. LOL!

Layering Love SC AC Swap 2016 (4) Layering Love SC AC Swap 2016 (1)


And this final card was given to me by Lorrie – added to the classic black and white is a splash of Real Red. I think it really creates a striking card.

Layering Love (2)

These dies are a lot of fun and I’m really loving them for all kinds of projects!

Today is a bit crazy so I’m making this short so I can finish up the organizational items I wanted to share with you this week – I’m hoping I can post them for you tomorrow.

Meanwhile I thought I’d share a photo of what I did this morning. My son surprised me with a trip to the lumber yard! Yippie!

A little Pop of Pink!

I love Melon Mambo and Basic Black together. It’s bright, cheerful and classic. What can I say it just makes me smile. So the Pop of Pink Designer Washi Tape is definitely a hit!

Layering Love (1)

This fun and cheerful card was one I stamped the other night with my friends. I’m really beginning to like the stamp set Layering Love. It’s Big and Bold and makes a focal point easy peasy.  And the fact  it works perfectly with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies as you can see doesn’t hurt at all.

Don’t forget, for a flawless finish use your Embossing Buddy before you stamp and heat emboss – It works every time!

Stop by again tomorrow when I’ll share a card we made using the Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper.
